ABOUT PHOTOSENSITIVE SEIZURES
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure
when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights
or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who
have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed
condition that can cause these photosensitive epileptic seizures"
while watching video games.
These seizures may have a variety of symptoms including:
lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of
arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness.
Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury
from falling down or striking nearby objects.
Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these
symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above
symptoms-children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these
The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting farther from
the television screen, using a smaller (clevision screen, playing in a well-lit room,
and nol playing when you are drowsy or fatigued.
If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a
doctor before playing.
OTHER IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION The Xbox Instruction
Manual contains Important health and safety information that you should read and
undersland before using this software.
AVOID DAMAGE TO YOUR TELEVISION
DO NOT USE WITH CERTAIN TELEVISIONS Some televisions, especially front- or
rear-projection types, can be damaged if any video games, including Xbox games,
are played on them. Static images presented during the normal course of game play
may "bum in" to the screen, causing a permanent shadow of the static image to
appear at all times, even when video games are not being played. Similar damage
may occur from static images created when placing a video game on hold or pause.
Consult your television owner's manual to determine if video games can be played
safely on your set. If you are unable to find this information in the owner's manual,
contact your television dealer or the manufacturer to determine if video games can
be played on your set.
Unauthorized copying, reverse engineering, transmission, public performance,
rental, pay for play, or circumvention of copy protection is strictly prohibited.
